Bio


Sally M. Benson, who joined Stanford University in 2007, is the co-director of Stanford's Precourt Institute for Energy and the director of the Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP). A Professor in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering in the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, she studies technologies and pathways to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Prior to joining GCEP, Benson was a staff scientist in the Earth Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). In 2004, she completed a four-year term as Deputy Director of Operations at the lab. Benson also served as Division Director for Earth Sciences and Associate Laboratory Director for Energy Sciences at LBNL.

A ground water hydrologist and reservoir engineer, Benson has conducted research to address a range of issues related to energy and the environment. Her research interests include geologic storage of CO2 in deep underground formations, technologies and energy systems for a low-carbon future, and geotechnical instrumentation for subsurface characterization and monitoring.

The author or co-author of over 160 scientific publications, Benson is a member of the American Geophysical Union, the Society of Petroleum Engineers, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Chemical Society.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests


Research Activities

For the past 15 years, I have focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy production. My research activities cover two different but complementary areas: (1) energy systems anlysis to help guide decision-making about the best options for providing plentiful energy supplies while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and (2) sequestering carbon dioxide in deep underground formations. As the Director of GCEP, I work with faculty and students across the campus.

Teaching Activities

I teach courses on carbon dioxide capture and storage, pathways for a successful transition to a low greenhouse gas energy system, laboratory measurements on rocks and a weekly Energy Seminar. I also teach the Energy Resources Engineering Senior Project.

Professional Activities

Board Member, National Renewable Energy Lab and Climate Central. Member of American Geophysical Union, Society of Petroleum Engineers, and American Association for the Advancement of Science. Advisory Board Member for National Geographic's Great Energy Challenge, Sandia National Laboratory and Pacific Northwest National laboratory.

    Abstract

    The elevated level of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) has caused serious concern of the progression of global warming. Geological sequestration is considered as one of the most promising techniques for mitigating the damaging effect of global climate change. Investigations over wide range of length-scales are important for systematic evaluation of the underground formations from prospective CO2 reservoir. Understanding the relationship between the micro morphology and the observed macro phenomena is even more crucial. Here we show Synchrotron based X-ray micro tomographic study of the morphological buildup of Sandstones. We present a numerical method to extract the pore sizes distribution of the porous structure directly, without approximation or complex calculation. We have also demonstrated its capability in predicting the capillary pressure curve in a mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP) measurement. The method presented in this work can be directly applied to the morphological studies of heterogeneous systems in various research fields, ranging from Carbon Capture and Storage, and Enhanced Oil Recovery to environmental remediation in the vadose zone.

    Abstract

    A combination of declining costs and policy measures motivated by greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction and energy security have driven rapid growth in the global installed capacity of solar photovoltaics (PV). This paper develops a number of unique data sets, namely the following: calculation of distribution of global capacity factor for PV deployment; meta-analysis of energy consumption in PV system manufacture and deployment; and documentation of reduction in energetic costs of PV system production. These data are used as input into a new net energy analysis of the global PV industry, as opposed to device level analysis. In addition, the paper introduces a new concept: a model tracking energetic costs of manufacturing and installing PV systems, including balance of system (BOS) components. The model is used to forecast electrical energy requirements to scale up the PV industry and determine the electricity balance of the global PV industry to 2020. Results suggest that the industry was a net consumer of electricity as recently as 2010. However, there is a >50% that in 2012 the PV industry is a net electricity provider and will "pay back" the electrical energy required for its early growth before 2020. Further reducing energetic costs of PV deployment will enable more rapid growth of the PV industry. There is also great potential to increase the capacity factor of PV deployment. These conclusions have a number of implications for R&D and deployment, including the following: monitoring of the energy embodied within PV systems; designing more efficient and durable systems; and deploying PV systems in locations that will achieve high capacity factors.

    Abstract

    CO₂ was injected into a coal fire burning at a depth of 15 m in the subsurface in southwestern Colorado, USA. Measurements were made of the ¹³CO₂ isotopic signature of gas exhaust from an observation well and two surface fissures. The goal of the test was to determine (1) whether CO₂ with a distinct isotopic signature could be used as a tracer to identify flow pathways and travel times in a combustion setting where CO₂ was present in significant quantities in the gases being emitted from the coalbed fire, and (2) to confirm the existence of a self-propagating system of air-intake and combustion gas exhaust that has been previously proposed. CO₂ was injected in three separate periods. The ¹³CO₂ isotopic signature was measured at high frequency (0.5 Hz) before, during, and after the injection periods for gas flowing from fissures over the fire and from gas entering an observation well drilled into the formation just above the fire but near the combustion zone. In two cases, a shift in the isotopic signature of outgassing CO₂ provided clear evidence that injected CO₂ had traveled from the injection well to the observation point, while in a third case, no response was seen and the fissure could not be assumed to have a flowpath connected with the injection well. High-frequency measurements of the ¹³CO₂ signature of gas in observation wells is identified as a viable technique for tracking CO₂ injected into subsurface formations in real-time. In addition, a chimney-like coupled air-intake and exhaust outlet system feeding the combustion of the coal seam was confirmed. This can be used to further develop strategies for extinguishing the fire.

  • Selenium speciation, solubility, and mobility in land-disposed dredged sediments ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY Zawislanski, P. T., Benson, S. M., Terberg, R., Borglin, S. E. 2003; 37 (11): 2415-2420

    Abstract

    Pilot-scale tests for the land disposal of Se-enriched sediments from the San Luis Drain were performed in the San Joaquin Valley, California. Three test plots were instrumented and monitored on a dirt-road embankment near the sediment source area, providing an opportunity to measure Se oxidation and solubilization rates over a period of 2-3 yr. Soil, soil water, and groundwater data indicated that the amendment did not cause movement of dissolved Se below a depth of 15 cm. The low permeability of underlying sediments and the overall low Se solubility limit Se movement toward the groundwater table. Selenium remained in reduced forms and largely immobile at this site, although in-situ Se oxidation was measurable. Soluble Se concentrations increased from less than 0.5% to approximately 2.5% in the first 207 d following sediment application. Minor Se solubilization occurred after 439 and 704 d. Changes in Se fractionation measured using sequential extractions and Se speciation based on X-ray spectroscopy (XANES) results were in qualitative agreement. XANES results indicated initially rapid oxidation of organo-Se and/or elemental Se to selenite during the first 207 d, followed by minor oxidation after 439 d. Further solubilization of the Se inventory is anticipated, but at a low rate of 1-2% per year, comparable to rates measured in other studies.
